Onam - the harvest festival of Kerala
Onam, a celebration of equality, justice and prosperity, is the State festival of Kerala, South India, which unites all Keralites across the world irrespective of caste, colour or creed and is celebrated in Kerala and around the world with pomp and grandeur. The whole state and people of Kerala joins in the fervour to celebrate the return of the King Mahabali to meet his ‘prajas’ (subjects). Legend has it that every year, King Mahabali, the righteous king visits the land from the nether world and Keralites unite in festivities to welcome the return of the mythical King Mahabali.
The whole of Kerala is splashed with vibrance during this season. The ten days of Onam commences on Atham day and goes up to the Thiruvonam day in the Malayalam month of Chingam (August / September). Thiruvonam is the most important day of Onam which is also the harvest festival.
The special Onasadhya (traditional feast) comprising a minimum of 11 dishes are laid out and people savour in the delicious delicacies and top it up by indulging in traditional games and art forms. Onam, the harvest festival of Kerala, is a celebration of the heart and a feast to the senses.
